As a prototype and testbed for NVIDIA Spectrum-X benchmark projects, NVIDIA is building Israel-1, a hyperscale generative artificial intelligence supercomputer, which will be hosted in its Israeli data center, according to a statement on the company's website.

Israel-1 will be the most potent supercomputer in Israel, as the Times of Israel noted. 

Its speed will be eight exaflops. One exaflop equals at least one quintillion (18 zeros) operations per second, making the Israel-1 one of the fastest artificial intelligence supercomputers in the world.
